Bill Schroeder was my room mate, I had to pack his things and take them to his parents. Second saddest day of my life.

They entered Cambodia because rebels were raping and murdering villagers and running across the border to safety, when they hit 6 patrols of our "observers" we chased them to bring back our boys. Jane Fonda spit at us and called us murderers and child killers and only showed attrocities of war with no background - that picture of the tiny girl running from the bombs was never explained to the public - she was running to us from the VC that raped and tortured her mother & grandmother and killed the village elder because he refused to help them locate us. Anti-war propaganda spin is dangerous, don't believe what the sensationalists want to show you.

Why do I defend the military action back then? I was there. Our job was to train them to fight for themselves - we had no live ammo and could not engage - as I watched the village elder's pregnant daughter tied to a tree in the center of the village and her baby cut from her, her insides spread all around the village and left to die. And they wonder why we still have nightmares......

All war is senseless and disgusting, our hearts continually go out to the families of those that have given so much but understood by so few. Should we be standing up for those that can't? Only if our government is capable of telling the truth and willing to bring them all back home, over 1800 american boys are still captives and slaves there - that's the real shame for the American people.

This is my anger rant, sorry. I better medicate, I need an attitude adjustment.

The letter from the mother of the fallen student stands the testament of time that all wounds never heal. Mostly to say a parent should never have to bury their child. It sometimes is very scary to understand that the one's making the decisions are the one's who are the most closed minded and ignorant.

I do tho sadly feel that we are entering into this circle I talked about. The propaganda we see on the national news compared to the REAL news we see on the net is becoming more and more separated. This in itself shows a great lack of leadership and trust which Inevitably takes some of us down the path of least resistance.

I can only say that in this time of the ability to find the truth that we look upon ourselves to understand the sadness that is beyond our control and focus on our world and do what I have said from day 1.

Share The Love And Pass It On.

To all of those that were touched by this saddened day I say I'm sorry for the closed minded ignorance that is our American Way Of Life.

This is an example of why I do not favor the US going the way of Europe, Australia and other 'progressive' countries. Citizens without guns are captives when the government decides it is going to use it's own weapons to put them in line.

A semi auto rifle will not defeat tanks and other weapons of an advanced army or police force, but gives the government enough resistance that it gets messy putting down a revolt.

China, Russia, Cuba, Cambodia and all the rest, started with something similar to Kent State, except they just kept going till millions had been killed.

Your option to turn this into your political statement disregarding the lack of compassion or empathy has not gone unnoticed.

Mr.Wags
I thought that you were going to relate the story of the woman, really a 14 yr old runaway girl, that was the first to the fallen kid.

Me too. I was a tad older than the girl in the picture then.

Shotguns loaded with 00 buck are still called riot guns.
